Had to sign up as soon as I saw this - I am facing exactly the same symptoms, and was searching like crazy these past few days for a cause of this. I'd never thought it could be related to Emsisoft, I thought I'd have to change my motherboard or PSU.
Anyway, I am using Internet Security, and the symptoms started showing a few days ago. Emsisoft showed a software update last night, but didn't help - still having problems with shutdown:
- Monitor goes off
- GPU goes off (nvidia 1070)
- CPU still working (presumably, water pump keeps spinning) (i7 8520k)
- SSD/HDD'd still working
- Fans still working
When selecting restart - everything goes OK; when selecting Shutdown, either from Win10 or from log on screen - it never turns off.
Thank you in advance,
